A lenf?thy dispatch from Springfield to
t le Chicago Herald reviews the political
E.tuation in the Eleventh congressional
cistrict. The article starts by saying:
The republican editors and bosses in
tbe Eleventh district are sharpening their
mts, rubbing their eyes and generally be
stirring themselves in rnticipatioa of a
1 ird fight againf t the popular Ben Cable,
vho :s as good as nominated for congress
in that district this year. The brothers
' f republican faith are not dwelling in
that unity that is characteristic of diplo
matic politicians who have an up-hill
light before them. A. couple of weeks
tgo the chairman of the congressional
committee toned a call for the cougres
iionul convenlion to meet at Rock Island
Julj 7 at 11 ft m. The call provided for
tn delegates divided this way : IiHnco:k,
f; Henderson. 7; Mellonougb, 15; Mer
' r, 12; Rock aland, 88; 8 :tuyler, a-, War
ren, 14. Just n sion as it had been pub
ished a great howl rose from every coun
y in the district except Rock Island. The
iction of tie chsinnan in calling the con
entior. without consu'tinc; thecommit'ee
vas denounC'd in unmeasured term',
nd several cf the counties, through their
newspaper organs, announced tbat they
would pay no at'ontion to the call. Then
lie cLairman, who is really a shrewi. man.
evoked the call, and there is now a tacit
inderstanding that the conuention will not
e held until some time in Augtst,
r possibly September. Meantime the
vork of "mentioning" candidates for
lacrifice ges on in the rural press. The
flock Island bosses are playing a smart
ame. Gest, the smooth-bore lawyer of
Rock Island, is really crnzy to have an
ither go at Mr. Cable, and at the same
time he doesn't want to appear too anx
ous. He wants the nomination to come
to him ' in a way that he could not re
fuse it," as one of his toadies expressed
tbe sentiment yesterday. He will hardly
be gratified, and if he wants to be hon
ored hgain he wiil have to fiht like a
common, ordinary politician with money
and tLe grace to spend it fretiy and eas
ily. Mr.Gts'. is no fool and probably
realizes what, is expected of hhn
But the bunco game being played by
the republican papers in Rock Island
county has not yet penetrated the dull
intellects of the r,:ral giants ot the quill
down in the south end of the district ex
cept this far: They saw tin early con
vention held at Rock Island would result
in the renominatlon of Mr. Gest. They
are a jealous lot of duffers the repub
iicans f Warren, Schuyler and Hancock
counties and they want all the good
things they can catch on their hook and
line. What they cannot ee. through
the hair on their het.ds is the singular
position of the Rock Island
p ifers. Now here is the M' line IVspatch
Dhontlng for Col. Benjamin P. Marsh, of
Hancock, ard the A'efo paper copies it
with complimentary readiness Mercer is
re illy an appendage of Rock Islano. any
how, and will sneize the moment the
big'tin takes snuff The Moiine Review
couldn't think of jo:ning with a rival in
the same town, and so it comes out hot
for ' Dr. Calvin Truesdaleof Rock Inl
and. The Rock Tsland Union ir.si-ts on
Gest for another trial, and the Rock Isl
ander, an alleged independent paper with
labor and greenback predilection5, shouts
loudest for the fcxy txconarosman.
The Rock Islander could probably be ' 'in
doeed" to support a democrat. ExRc p
rasenttttve Galloway, who fousht the light
for Streeter among the republican mem
bers of the last general assembly, wants
Al x indcr McLean, of Macomb, and the
LaHarpe Q.iill contains a strong plea for
Representative C. Velasco Chandler, the
millionaire McDoDOUgh county farmer.
Warren county will probably present the
ancient Mr. Turnbull, and Henderson
could furnish J. O. Anderson, of Oquaw
ka, in a pinch. When we hear from
Clarence Gittings we will know the name
of the winner. He never makes a mis
take, and really the republicans might go
farther and fare far worse for a congress
onal candidate. Clarence is way up in
G) as a politician.
The article speaks further of the Drob.
Lle candidacy of Alexander McLean of
Macomb, refers to the tact of the La
Barpc papers dismissing Col. Marsh and
Arville F, Berry its home statesmen
vith complimentary reference to C. V.

rey fight may nevertheless be resumed,

.he candidate of the Moiine
aipers and that politics is too filthy a
jool for a man to enter at his time of life.
It says Deere and Rosenfield are a pretty
imooth pair, and that if Charles Deere
sn't nominated the candidate will be W.
H. Gest, and that the Rock Island papers
ind bosses know it as we 1 as Mr. Gest
himself, He has made his peace with
Deere and Rosenfield, and that is all that
s required to insure Rock Island county,
it exposes a great many things that are
lot pleasant reflections on tbe Deere
ncthods in politics. The Herald article
The Rock Island politicians are striv
ing with might and main to create tbe
mpreseion that Mr. Gest don't want tbe
lomination, and that it will have to be
forced upon him. "If he would only
ake it," one of them tearfully cries, ,-we
ire sure tbe republicans of the district
vould hasten to right the great wrong
hey did the major in 1890 by elect
ng him with a tremendous major
ity. But will he allow his name to go be
fore the convention?" That is a puzzle
.hat i ; easy solved. Would the editor of
he Rock Island Union or any other pa
per in the town, refuse the Rock Island
308tofflce? Would Mr. Deere decline a
nomination for governor? He came yery

lock Island republican can be believed,

ol Kepresentatives 1
The pt stmasters of the district have a
grievance against Mr. Gest that will cut
an important figure in the preliminary
campaign for the nomination. It is well
known that he was a rabid Blaine crank,
and that his rage and disappointment at
tne uereat of his irto! was great. Thus, so
far as the office-holders are concerned,
Mr. Oest is in trouble. If he had guessed
right he would have been a hero . Bat

The Silver Crescent has entered upon
her regular trips between Rock Island,
Davenport and Burlington. The boat in
addition to doing a good freight business
will also make a specialty of passenger
and excursion business.
Speaking of packets and their freight
a peculiar law is brought to mind, lately
inacted to make liver travel safer. Acs
cording to this, law, which was mud l to
increase the safety of river travel, no
stean boat shall enrry coal oil from one
point to another on the rivers of this
country when 6uch points are connected
by railroads. The penalty is ?500 for
each offense. In one case it was charged
that the owners of the two steamboats,
Helena and Benton, carried coal oil from
St. Louis to Osage City and Bennett's
Mills. The defendants said in reply that
the coal oil was of high proof and would
not ignite under 110 degrees of heat, and
that the point to which the oil was con
signed beyond Bennett's Mills and Osage
City could only !:e reached by that boat.
The violation of this statute will cost the
owners of the steamboats $1,000 each respectively.
Th JMrwl Band Concert.
The first of the summer concerts in
Spencer square this season was given by
Bleuer's band last evening and a most en
joyable musical programme wi.s present
ed. The band has improved consider
ably since last season, both in the class of
its music and the rendition of the same,
and with their brilliant new uniforms
present a handsome and creditable ap
pearance. The beautiful square was
crowded with people and the series of
c mcerts this year promises to be even
mote of a success than it was last year.
A Point For Yon.
In yiew of What llool's Sarssparil'a

to suppose that it will be of benefit to
you? For Scrofula. Salt Rheum, and all
other diseases of the blood. For Dysp
epsia. Indignation, Sick Headache. Loss
of Appetite. That Tired Feeling, Catarrh
Malaiia, Rheumatism. Hood's Sarsa
parilla isa an unequalled remedy.

Mr. Roberts is not the only one who
finds "Blush of Roses" delightful, as
many ladies and gentlemen can testify,
who have purchased it from T. II. Thomas.

The Twins lost the last of the Evans

was a good game from start to finish and
belonged to anyone up to the ninth in
ning. Collins and Briggs was the Horsier
battery while Baxendale and S&ge did the
heavy work for the locals. Roberts the
new left fielder, distinguished bimseit
again yesterday by a two-bagger, a home
run and a double play from left field to
Sage at the home plate, cutting off an

THE I.-I. LEAGUE MEETS.
A meeting of the Illinois-Iowa league
was held at the Sherman house in Chica
go yesterday. The members spent three
hours discussing the question as to
whether the last meeting held at Quincy
was legal or not. There was trouble over
the fact that the new Quincy club had
been granted a franchise by Secretary
McCauIl. There was a disposition mani
fested to sit down on McCauil, but bis
action wa9 finally sustained. After the
meeting tbe directors adjourned to the
National league ball gro' nds to see the
argument between the Chicago? and Cin
cinnatis. GROUNDERS .
In the game at Eansvi!le oa Sunday,
Nulton made two runs sacraficcd once
had one put out, 10 assists and not an
error, a record good enough for any
third baseman. He followed this Mon
day with three runs, four hits, two pat
outs, two assists and no errors. Verily
Nulton is in the push.
McGurk hit out a two-bagger, mule
one run, sacrificed twice, stole two bases,
and had 13 rut outs and no errors in
Sunday's game. His stolen bases were
tbe only ones credited to cither side in
Zeis got hit ovtr the left eye with a
pitched ball in Sunday's same that nearly
disabled him, but he stuck the game out
and caught a good game on Monday.
Hmicdma of the Esnsvilles got his
home run in Monday's game by the ball
getting lost in the long grass.
Nulton, McGuirk ar.dZds each got a
two-bagger in Monday's game and Dale
poked out a liner for three bases.
McGuirk manages to get in his cus
tomary two bagger almost every game.
